Let us see, once Wikidata has replaced most of the local language links, what is left and how the world looks then. This would be then the appropriate moment to consider how to further extend the system. Right now we would be building on too many assumptions that we cannot validate for a rather small benefit.

Is there any reason not to have links from wikidata/FooBar to
en.wiki/FooBar and de.wiki/Foo#Bar? It would be a directed edge, but is
that a problem?

I think there are a lot of articles especially in the german wikipedia
where you don't have FooBar but Foo#Bar.
